The YEG season is in full swing as the IDGI team dissects a variety of body language blitzes, from the showy embraces of Tango Fire to the confounding gestures of symphony conductors. With special guest, Laura “Boo” Raboud, who dishes on her experience of the Prairie Dance Circuit—from both sides of the stage.
There’s a bug in the tent! Join Paul and Fawnda as they launch into a review of BWDC’s presentation of Solitudes: Solo, Daniel Léveillé‘s barely-clothed series of lone dancers in the “cross-fit of contemporary dance.”
We’re back with a jam-packed episode to start Season 3. Paul and Fawnda regale with tales from Isabelle Van Grimde’s the Body in Question(s)2, co-presented by BWDC and the U of A Museums. We ponder the release of Canada Council’s recent Yes I Dance survey (and its accompanying Interactive Dance Wheel), and finally round up all the dance events (and dancey-sorta things) to look forward to in #yeg for start of the 2015-16 season.
Paul and a 10-year-old boy declare their favourite show of the year (so far) while Fawnda explains just who Marie Chouinard is. That’s right: IDGI covers the relentless, sexy, and overall fascinating return of the Montreal dance savant’s intrepid Compagnie to #yeg after nearly 20 years.
It’s the Year in Review episode! Paul and Fawnda share their thoughts on the year in dance, particularly the highlights. Among other things, they discuss the most affecting show of the season, the dancer with the best name, and the gal in town with dragon balls.
